After 10 months of working nearly 24/7, everyday breakups (since you never get home to him/her at the promised time:) and quitting your job almost equally often in a recognizable & impulsive Hollywood style, one would think that the only logical thing would be to immensely look forward to the last day of the festival. Strangely, it was just the other way round. We wished it could have lasted forever.

The last day of bdw 2010 was something like a historical clash of global creative titans! remember Godzilla vs. Megaron? Well, then please do take a look at the closing day of smart2. And you will easily imagine how hard it was for the audience to vote for
the winner of this years belgrade design grand prix, the traditionally awarded prize for best speaker at the conference.

During Belgrade Design Week 2009, you enabled participants to meet with representatives from different countries, in professional, as well a sin social settings, which provided the opportunity for spontaneous interactions, where everyone was engaged in true cross-cultural dialogues. This allowed participants from different countries to become familiar with attitudes, ideas, and practices on the common topics of design.   We had received first hand accounts of current situation in creative fields and intellectual status of Belgrade Design Week, exchanged ideas and knowledge, mixed and mingled among each other. And the unique opportunity was given for all of us to establish professional relationships and develop lifelong friendships. We were eager to discover Belgrade and had a unique chance to enjoy the city! No doubt, it was our first, but not our last visit to Belgrade. All the best to Belgrade Design Week for the future to come! We are looking forward to be a part of your success
